I started a new image today, but I was having a hard time with it. Then I started coloring and I’m still having a hard time of it. And that’s with the foreground, I don’t have a clue what I’m going to do with the background. I may end up scraping it. I like the idea, and the emotions in it, but I figure that’s all the more reason to start over and make sure I get it right. The other problem is the color scheme is starting to look suspiciously like my last project. I like to have a different sort of pallette from project to project. It keeps things interesting.
So much for the idea of staring a new project. Give me a bit of time, and maybe I’ll come up with something. This is the risk we take, investing a lot of time an energy to a project that may not give back what you would have liked. One of the hard parts about this project was the hands. I have a difficult time with the hands, and yet hands can be really expressive, especailly in the sort of ‘reaching out’ and ‘giving’ aspect that I was trying to convey. We’ll see if I have better luck next time I guess.
